Be inspired - No matter how many pictures you’ve seen, nothing will prepare you for your first view of Uluru (Ayres Rock). Even from a distance, across the rich red plains of The Centre, the power of its ancient spirit will overwhelm you.
Once you stand at its base, touch it and explore the mysteries of its perimeter, you will understand why it’s not only a treasured icon to local Aboriginal people, but also one of the great wonders of the world.

Ayres Rock Aboriginal Ties - There are no two views of Uluru that are the same, especially not after you’ve looked at it through the eyes of the traditional owners the Anangu. To them Uluru is sacred.

Tour with Aboriginal guides, who will explain some of the important creation laws of Uluru. But if you’d rather explore on your own, interpretive signage also provides fascinating details of the significance of Uluru to the Anangu.
The National Park - Uluru (Ayres Rock) is located in the 1,325 hectare Uluru—Kata Tjuta National Park. The park has been World-Heritage listed for not only the importance of its natural phenomena, but also its cultural significance.
Uluru measures 9.4 km around the base and rises up to 348 metres. It is like an iceberg in the desert, in that geologists believe up to six kilometres remain buried beneath the earth.
Uluru is literally only the tip of the iceberg. To the west, and standing over 200 metres taller than Uluru, are the gigantic domes of Mt Olga/Kata Tjuta, the traditional name meaning many heads. There are in fact 36 separate domes, and you’ll feel as if you need many heads to absorb the myriad of sights.
Uluru and Kata Tjuta reveal the depth of their moods at the rising and setting sun. Witness a display of colours from gentle, dusky blues and purples to fierce oranges and reds, glowing with the last remnants of the day.
